Q: Can I turn off the Voice mode?

A: Yes, the default setting when you turn on the unit for the first time is Voice mode. This means every time you switch modes (for example, going from Bluetooth to FM Radio mode) a voice announces what audio mode you are in. You can turn off the voice by holding the "M" button down for 3 seconds and replace the voice with a single ping. Further instructions can also be found in the user manual.


Q: Is there a reset key?

A: Yes, the reset key is the center “Play/Pause” button. Hold it down for 8 seconds.


Q: Why can I no longer connect the TallBoy to my Bluetooth device?

A: The TallBoy speaker can only be connected to one Bluetooth device at a time and remembers the last one it was connected to. If you were using your smartphone and later want to operate the unit from your tablet, you will need to first turn off the Bluetooth signal on your phone before connecting the TallBoy to your tablet.


Q: Why can't I find any FM stations?

A: For the Previous and Next Track Buttons: HOLD until the center Pause/Play button starts BLINKING then release to automatically go to the previously available station in your location. You will find most of the local stations in your area.

It would have been nice to have a LED display to show what station you were on but with all the features and modes of audio play packed into a small unit, there just was not any room to spare.


Q: How can I get more bass tone with the TallBoy?

A: Some users or genres of music need more bass tone. Many of our customers found they could enhance the lower tone by downloading an Equalizer & Bass Booster App for their smartphone. The basic versions are free. The following are links for the Apps.

FOR: iPhone Device

FOR: Android Device

Q:  Do you have missing, damaged or lost accessories etc?

We have plenty of everything including remote controllers, rubber pads etc. Email us from our Contact page. If you need an additional Bike Cage you can order one through our Amazon listing.  If the cages are out of stock by all means contact us.

Q: How long does it take to fully charge the battery?

A: Because the unit has one of the largest capacity batteries in the mini Bluetooth speaker market, it may take 6 to 8 hours to fully charge the first time or when the battery is completely drained. That's why the playtime lasts 2 to 3 times longer than other speakers. However, you can start using the Tallboy after a couple of hours charging.
